Advantage, owned by Hertz. Not sure of the set up, but, they also assign your car, no selection by you. No Kiosk, counter check in.
Personally, I don't care (not meant in a nasty way) who you rent from, but, I would like you to be aware of your options.
Unless things have changed since April, you DO get to select your car at Dollar. We had rented a full size, went to the appropriate aisle and had our choice of some pretty well beaten Crown Victorias or newer Altimas. We took the Altima.

(Just double checked my reservation from then to ensure it was Dollar).

This is my first time renting a car in 11 years. We went with dollar and did the online registration. We still have to pay for it. Will there be signs that indicate where to go once I get my bags? Would it be easier to send DH to get my bags and me to get the car....by easier, I mean faster....I want to get to Disney asap

Not sure if they changed or not, but every single person I direct to Dollar or Thrifty (apparently reading signs is not something anyone does anymore) has a rental contract and the location of their vehicle. Also, I am asked a bunch where a certain parking space for Dollar/thrifty is, so, that would lead me to believe the vehicles are preassigned. If I run across my friend who works for Dollar, I will ask her and get back to update.

Thank you gmeh1,

I loved Alamo, and will stick with them. We're trying to stay under a certain budget for this trip so it gets tempting when I see a lower rater, but I haven't switched.

You are most welcome. I do understand about budgets and having some wiggle room. And I most certainly understand about temptation. LOL.
Have a GREAT trip.

Anyone have any more info on the T Code? Almost too good to be true. 8/14-8/20 is $262 for a mini van. Any membership/code associated with it. Just would hate to check in and find that the code is bogus. Thanks for the help. MDM

We just picked up a minivan using this code in ft Myers fl yesterday.....we tried to use the Kiosk check in but couldn't ...so we had to,use the counter.....the girl there looked at the code .....said it was a German code and had to ask if it was ok......she came back and honored it.....but I would not use,it again unless I was able to bypass the counter...too stressful waiting for her to come back.....I did have a back up reservation with national so if it didn't work we would have gone there....not sure if the Orlando,airport would have been different since the volume of,rentals there is much higher than ft Myers

Just used the "T" code at MCO last week. No problem at all- not even an eye blink. When I returned the SUV, the attendant said he was checking that the tank had been filled. I told him that fuel was included in my rate and again not even an eye blink.
If it makes you feel better to have a back up code do that. As I've stated previously though, we have used the different variations of this code for years at airports throughout the country and have never had a problem.

Does anyone have any good rental codes for a minivan pickup in Tampa? Right now I have a weekly total rate of $429 with Alamo. I've been checking everyday. The rates are still higher than what I have. Thanks!!!

Unless they've changed since we last used Dollar (more than a year, I'll admit), we were given a contract, set of keys and pointed to a specific space. We were allowed to bypass the counter and check in at the garage due to Express membership.
